Porcelain Dental Crowns Dentist

Quality Crowns in Riverdale & Manhattan

Do you have chipped, cracked, badly decayed or otherwise weakened teeth? Porcelain dental crowns may be the best option to fix your teeth.

What are Porcelain Dental Crowns?

Porcelain Crowns maintain the aesthetic appearance of teeth by covering the entire visible surface of the tooth, while adding significant reinforcement and protection to the tooth. After removing all areas of decay, your dentist will take an impression of the tooth to be crowned and send it to a dental laboratory to create the crown. Crowns can be made of porcelain or gold. Porcelain crowns are extremely natural looking; virtually indistinguishable from other teeth, making them an ideal choice for visible teeth. Gold crowns are less expensive, and pose no risk of chipping, and therefore are useful when crowning back teeth.

What are the benefits of dental crowns:

  • Look like your natural teeth
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Offer support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  • They improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Prevent the further damage of teeth
  • Seal teeth following root canal therapy

What are Alternatives to Dental Crowns?
